I feel the square bases will make playing it harder though, but idk, I dont play much anymore anyways so it might be fine to keep it this way cuz i like it better.

I have been working as of late on finishing the last unit from my Emperor's Children for sale, and that would be my Command Squad with a lot of conversion work to make it semi-chaotic to use in both armies.

Also found an old Ultramarine captain that I will probably sell for a few bucks. I want to continue painting warmachine models but since they are mine, and they are warmachine models, I tend to spend sooooooooo much time on them to make sure they are perfect that it is burning me out faster... thinking I might work on some 40k nonsense or maybe pick up more mantic skeletons to make my undead army even weirder.

Currently still just selling stuff I have previously finished, going to work on my daemonettes though for my own army, try to find a way to paint them quickly (like I do my bloodletters) without losing detail quality... drybrushing is probably going to be my friend.

After that I think I am going to paint some of my limited edition models and either sell them or keep them for display... idk if I'm that bad on cash to sell yet... we shall see.

Oh, I love that scheme. The light purple and blue go well together.

She looks stunning, but she needs something to break up the menotony (?) Of the colour. The colour looks really good but it needs something to make it pop you know? I know its a wip, but just my 2 crowns.

Hm, I hear what you are saying, I used gold on the banner to give it some more flair but it doesnt break much up. I was trying to use the blue to give some contrast but I do get it is still somewhat muted overall. Might brighten up the blue some more to pop, i'll do that on a more accessible mini to test it.

This is the banner girl all finished, I tried the brighter blue on a different model and felt instead of brightening the model it created a "whitewashed" look, dulling the overall look.

Oohh that is gorgeous ocean! what about a little bit of gold on her shirt trim? I dunno what it's supposed to be but even if you just did it like it was trimmed in gold maybe? I dunno, just a thought

If I put gold on this model it'll have to be the thigh band, I'll try it out on a different command model, right now I'm just trying to get good with the people and silver techniques

Last 2 before I gotta prime anything, I am enjoying this scheme but I believe I will probably sell these to get another box of daemonettes fresh to make the minis and the scheme better.
